President Trump drew a “YUGE” crowd on Saturday at his first major “Save America” campaign rally held at the Lorain County Fairgrounds in Wellington, Ohio.
While tens of thousands of supporters traveled from all over the country to see Trump in-person, millions of fans tuned in online across RSBN’s platforms. On YouTube alone, RSBN saw a grand total of 2.3 million viewers. 1.4 million watched on Facebook and approximately 1.1 million watched on Rumble.
To kick off his first rally since leaving the White House, the 45th president shifted attention directly to the upcoming midterm elections.
“Together, we will send Joe Biden and the fake news media, and all of the people who are bad to our country, like big tech tyrants, a message they can never sensor, cancel, or ignore. We will take back the House, we will take back the Senate, and we will take back America, soon,” said Trump.
Just minutes into his speech, Trump told the crowd, “with your help, we are going to defeat the radical Democrats, and we have no choice.” He then publicly endorsed Max Miller, a former White House aide, who is challenging Rep. Anthony Gonzalez, R-Ohio, for a seat in the state’s 16th congressional district. Gonzalez is an incumbent Republican who was one of the 10 House members of the GOP who supported the impeachment of the president.
“In Congress, Max will be tough on illegal immigration, he will be strong on crime, he will stand up to China, and he will protect Ohio jobs, just like I did,” the president continued.
When it came to the current border crisis and illegal immigration, Trump said, “We empowered ICE to do their jobs, we worked to cancel down on sanctuary cities, we did a number on sanctuary cities. Sanctuary cities take care of many, many criminals, they’re very dangerous places.”
For the first time in several months, Trump read his famous poem “The Snake” that became so popular during his 2016 campaign, but this time, he read it in reference to illegal immigration.
While on the subject, Trump highlighted Vice President Kamala Harris’s lack of action on the border crisis, an issue being debated on both sides of the political aisle.
“Kamala Harris, your vice president, only went to the border yesterday for one simple reason, because I announced I was going, at the request of Texas Gov. Abbott and the Border Patrol,” he said.
The Ohio rally is just the beginning of Trump’s re-emergence in the public eye and he plans to keep spreading the “Save America” message during upcoming events.
“Over the past four years, my administration delivered for Americans of all backgrounds like never before. Save America is about building on those accomplishments, supporting the brave conservatives who will define the future of the America First Movement, the future of our party, and the future of our beloved country,” said Trump in a statement.
President Trump has scheduled his second “Save America” rally to be held on July 3, in Sarasota, Fla. The rally, also deemed “45 Fest,” will celebrate “Freedom, Faith, and America” on the eve of Independence Day. A fireworks show will be put on by the Republican Party of Florida and Sky King Fireworks. The event is expected to have live music and special guest speakers.
